About AEI-ASEM Summer School


About the ASEM Summer School Project

The 4th ASEM Meeting of Ministers for Education (ASEMME4) held in Kuala Lumpur in May 2013 had welcomed the willingness of Malaysia and the Asia-Europe Institute of the University of Malaya to develop, in cooperation with other interested ASEM members, a programme that could share what Asia has to offer with students, academicians, and researchers from Europe and other parts of the world.

In response to this decision of ASEMME4, the Ministry of Education Malaysia, in collaboration with the Asia-Europe Institute, has organized the Asia-Europe Institute-ASEM Summer School (AEI-ASC). The AEI-ASC has been designed to be a two-week programme that involves participants in educationally oriented field trips paired alongside relevant lectures to compliment the outdoor experiences.

The inaugural theme for the AEI-ASC is the August 2015 “Biodiversity and Cultural Heritage“, with the second theme in the summer of 2016 as the “Multiculturalism and Multiethnicity in Asia and Europe“. For the third edition in 2017, the theme was “Cultural Plurality in Asia and Europe”. “Cultural Diversity in Asia and Europe”  was the theme for the fourth edition in 2018

In 2019, the theme will be “Multiculturalism in Asia and Europe”.
